Affordable option, close to Happy Buddha!!
Basic, affordable, clean hotel walking distance to all the good bars and restaurants. YOU MUST visit the Happy Buddha bar right across the street!! They have excellent cocktails fast service and it's a very cool mix of foreigners and locals. We just stumbled upon it after dinner and ended up staying until they closed, definitely HAPPY BUDDHA was the highlight of our trip!!! We even came back in the morning and booked a Pablo Escobar tour.

Convenient and well located hotel.
Our stay in Medellin these days were mainly for Business but we wanted to have a hotel close to our event center and also to enjoy Medellin's night life so this place was located just perfect, 1 mile away from El Tesoro Convention Center and in the edge of the night life zone. A perfect mix. First night wasn't that great since the room was pretty dark and the noise due the clubs was high. Next day the counter person gave us the choice to move to other room, more light, less noise, so it was perfect for our stay there. Overall this was a good hotel, well located. Will suggest others (cheaper hostels) if your main purpose is to enjoy Lleras night life, but for a mixed trip like ours, it was perfect.
